WHO WE ARE

Testimonials        

Jessica Lynn Clark, PMP

My career has been a lesson in hustling from the bottom up, literally. I started out my professional life as a temporary receptionist in 1997 working for a Federal Government IT Manufacturer and Value Added Reseller (VAR). I was hired on permanently almost immediately and within three years played the roles of marketing coordinator, graphic designer, press relations, executive assistant, contracts manager, proposal writer (winning hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts), sales account management, assistant project manager, SBA 8(a) program manager, prime contractor mentor protégé liaison, and more. 

Since then I've worked for small businesses and start-ups in the information technology and IP based physical security industries. I've increased their revenue 200% in three year growth averages while simultaneously building an infrastructure to sustain that growth. I've had hands on-experience in every aspect of a business and know first-hand how to succeed through periods of rapid expansion.  From a temp-receptionist to a Chief Operating Officer and now the owner of my own firm, I have risen to every challenge presented to me. With JLC Consulting it's my pleasure to help your business achieve the highest of aspirations and overcome challenges. I've already taken them on and won, so you don't have to start from scratch.  

​I named my firm, JLC Consulting, not out of vanity but because it represents the first name of my husband, my daughter and myself.  It reminds me every day to lead a life of balance and always be aware of what's most important. I'm an extrovert, I draw my energy from engaging with others, working hard, taking calculate risks, and making a positive impact on people's lives. My personal life passions include; art, reading, community service, civil liberties, driving my teenage daughter everywhere, and cuddling up with my family to watch a movie. I've lived in Texas, New York and Maryland and I love traveling with my family and friends every opportunity we get.

Vision

Technology is evolving at the speed of light and client expectations are that you are keeping up. Getting ahead of your competition means that in order to be relevant tomorrow you are preparing today. 

Values

  1. Confidentiality & Privacy are paramount. You won't see case studies on our website or posted in our media with your name on it unless you specifically state your desire to do so in a signed agreement.  We aren't here to profit off of your name, we're here to be silent partners in your success story. 
  2. Unfiltered Honesty and Transparency are key pillars of consulting ethics. We can't simply tell you what you want to hear in order to pacify you. We must earn your trust by making your vision a reality while also by challenging and advising you to consider other ideas and points of view if it is warranted. 
  3. It is a Consultants duty to be meticulous and transparent. Accuracy is important, quality is crucial, and accountability is vital. 
  4. When you're saying that you're "Always busy," and, "There's never a good time," is actually exactly when you are in most need of a consultant. You don't have the time, but we do! Opportunity comes only for those who are courageous enough to recognize it and seize it before it slips away.
